Make a holiday rental home or apartment in Peniche, Portugal your home away from home

The Leiria district lies in the centre of the Costa de Prata, and the attractive town of Peniche is situated in the south of this district, on a rocky peninsula that juts out into the Atlantic Ocean. The town was originally an island, and only joined the mainland in the 16th century. Peniche has long been an important fishing port, and is home of the some of the best seafood restaurants in the region, if not in the whole of Portugal, as well as some fantastic surfing beaches.

Things to do in Peniche, Portugal

Thanks to its coastal location, seafood is big business in Peniche, with a number of the town’s restaurants specialising in this type of cuisine. Tuna, crayfish and sardines are three of the most common items you will find on the menus, and the resulting dishes are a far cry from the tinned products found on supermarket shelves.

If you prefer to stick to self-catering, the local market if the best place to head to pick up some bargains. The fish here is extremely fresh and great value for money, and you can also pick up fruit, vegetables and lace products – the latter of which are another local speciality.

As with many Portuguese towns and villages, the focal point of Peniche is the town square. Here you will find the baroque Misericordia Church and the 16th century fortress, which has a dominating presence in such a small town. There are also plenty of shops, cafes and bars dotted around this area, so you will not find yourself short of things to do.

The beaches of the Costa de Prata are just a short distance away, with Baleal offering great surfing, and Cabo Carvoeiro the top choice for scenic views out over the ocean. Kite surfing and wind surfing are also popular on the beaches around Peniche, taking advantage of the powerful winds coming off the Atlantic. A good range of beach bars, cafes and shops can also be found around the beaches, especially at popular Baleal.

Closer to Peniche, Obidos (25km) is one of the finest examples of a Portuguese medieval town, and where you can walk around the castle ramparts and enjoy panoramic views of the region.

Excellent base for silver coast

5 of 5
No hesitation recommending the villa which had everything you would need-,the English speaking tv channels were a bonus for the World Cup coverage !! Gary was really helpful at all stages in the process. We had been to the Algarve before but this was our first time in this part of Portugal and we really liked it. With the age of our children we gravitated towards the beaches which were stunning. Rio Cortico beach, a five minute drive away, is quiet even in mid July. Most on the beach are locals and a five minute walk down the beach leaves you in splendid isolation. Baleal beach is 20 minutes away by car and is fantastic- full of life with people of all ages enjoying the surfing, swimming and restaurants. ‘O Febras ‘ restaurant at the Baleal Co-Op opposite the beach was a great recommendation- an innocuous looking restaurant with beautiful , huge, fresh grilled sea bass for €9.90. Our extended family did surf lessons on the beach and we loved it. The villa is within easy reach of the walled town of Óbidos, a UNESCO heritage site, and we were lucky to be there for the annual medieval festival. The villa’s location is rural so you will need a car to get to all places bar the headland at the end of the lagoon which is a 25 minute stroll away. There are a few well priced cafes and restaurants there. Breakfast in Bica da Lagoa was great value (65c for great coffee!) and the Rio Cortico restaurant at the top of the headland had some great fish dishes. The N’aldeia restaurant was also (generally) good. Note that the restaurants are a little out of the way and inventory is kept necessarily tight so they sell what’s available and fresh until they run out! There is also a baker who drives around the lagoon each morning selling freshly baked bread, which was great. So, in summary: the house is perfect, the area is lovely (although we know we only scratched the surface in terms of sights), the area is far less touristy than the Algarve and therefore eating out is much cheaper. Ps: the weather was mixed for the two weeks. I suspect this is unusual for this time of year but it definitely doesn’t get as hot here as it would further south (which would be a positive for many )

Great Apartment in Lovely area of Portugal

5 of 5
We stayed fo 10 days at this wonderful apartment. The apartment is large and modern with 4 different balconies in a great resort. You definitely need a car but you can get to the beach, hotel and clubhouse in around 15 mins or so by foot, but a car is a must to visit all the wonder areas. Obidos was stunning and Lisbon (only an hour away) was a delight - definitely worth at least one day trip if not two. Lots of lovely restaurants and the hotel is lovely with a great spa if you like that sort of tihng. Would definately recommend and if you do go in June there are miles of empty beaches and most of the time we had the pool to ourselves. No noise and a nice temperature at that time of the year. Everything you need for a relaxing holiday thank you ...
